Lindsay Lohan made David Letterman’s heart beat faster when she told him she plays a stripper in her next film, “I Know Who Killed Me.” “You’re just gonna kill me; you know I have a heart condition. You’re just gonna kill me,” the CBS’ “Late Show” host said Wednesday night. The 20-year-old actress said the audience will be seeing “a lot” of her in the “really dark, scary film.” Lohan was at a loss for words when Letterman talked about her “Georgia Rule” co-star Jane Fonda. Last year, Fonda praised a studio executive’s scolding of Lohan for her absences on the set of the movie.last_img read more

Ryan Pini of Papua New Guinea and Antony James of England dead- heated for silver.”Words can’t describe how I feel.I’ve finally put together the perfect race,” Huegill said. “The last time I swam that quickly was 10 years ago.

New Bihar CM has big shoes to slip into, says Giridhar Jha

first_imgIt is always a tough task to follow in the footsteps of an illustrious predecessor. Bihar’s new Chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi should know it well, as he finds himself in an unenviable position after taking over the reins from none other than Nitish Kumar. Nitish, who resigned after the disastrous performance of the JD(U) the recent Lok Sabha elections, had raised the bar of good governance by bringing Bihar back on the tracks of development during his eightand-a-half-year rule. From facilitating economic growth of an underdeveloped state, restoring law and order and tackling the scourge of corruption with an iron hand, his regime was marked for quick decisions and out-of-the-box solutions to many a long-standing problem.Jitan Ram Manjhi has been a sixterm MLA who has outshone his colleagues with his performance.For the first time in Bihar, development became a byword in the corridors of power during his tenure which prompted his admirers to hail him as the best administrator since Sri Krishna Sinha, the first and the longest-serving chief minister in the state.His political decision, especially the one to snap his party’s ties with the BJP against the rising stature of Modi, may have been questioned but no one could take away the credit from him that he served, to the best of his ability, to work for the inclusive growth of Bihar all through his stint.Nitish’s government was applauded for giving 50 per cent reservation to women in the three-tier panchayati raj institutions, setting up of speedy trials for disposal of long-pending and high-profile criminal cases and confiscating assets of corrupt public servants, including IAS and IPS officers.That is why his sudden exit created a vacuum of sorts. Most people, including former deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi, felt that Manjhi, the new Chief Minister, would not be able to step into the big shoes of Nitish and end up as a dummy candidate to be remote controlled by his predecessor .This was, however, grossly unfair to Manjhi. A six-term MLA who was made minister in the Jagannath Mishra cabinet way back in the early 1980s, he has been a campaigner who had diligently worked his way to the top with making any noises over the years. Even his performance as the minister for SC/ST welfare in the Nitish government was better than most of his ministerial colleagues. This probably explains why no murmurs were heard within the JD(U) when he was handpicked by Nitish. It was Manjhi’s long experience – in addition to the fact that he belonged to the poorest of the poor Mushhar community of the mahadalits – that worked in his favour and minimised the possibility of any rebellion. Manjhi will now have to prove to his detractors that he is not merely a “rubber stamp.”His task is to carry forward the development agenda of Nitish but he is also expected to take his own independent decisions.Poor girls gettop spots in schoolsIi is not unusual for girls to outperform the boys in the school examinations these days. But in Bihar, they are grabbing the lion’s share of the top spots. In the Class XII Intermediate (Arts) examination conducted by the Bihar School Examination Board, out of the 20 students who got the top positions, 16 of them happened to be girls. What is significant about their achievement is the fact that all of them belonged to the interiors of the state. There were five girls from Madhubani district alone, three from Muzaffarpur, two each from Araria and Saharsa districts but none of them hailed from Patna.This year’s topper Huma Khatoon was a student of Purnia Secondary School while the second and third toppers were Kumari Priyanka from Siwan and Nidhi Kumari from Rosera in Samastipur district. Huma is the first girl from her family to have pursued her education beyond class X. The overall performance of the girls was also far better than the boys. While only 38.75 per cent boys could pass the examinations, 62.24 per cent girls achieved success. Still, the performance of the girls was not better than the last year. In 2013, altogether 19 girls were among the top 20 students. Girls’ education received a tremendous boost during the tenure of Nitish Kumar who offered girl students sops such as free bicycles to check the dropout rate in the state.Bihar kids enter record booksBihar’s kids have something to cheer about. The children of Kilkari Bihar Bal Bhavan have made it to the Limca Book of Records this year for their commendable feat. In December 2012, altogether 7,475 students in the age group of 9-16 had taken part in the Bal Olympiad (Children’s Olympiad) at the Moinul Haq Stadium in Patna. This turned out to be the largest children’s sports event in the country and earned it an entry into the record book.Patna Sahib mahotsav relocatedThe tourism department of the Bihar government has started organising the Patna Sahib Mahotsav on a grand scale at the birthplace of Guru Gobind Singh, seven years ago. Every year, it invites popular singers and other performers to regale the crowds at the festival held near the famous Harmandir Sahib shrine. This year, too, the two-day musical extravaganza saw singer Jasbir Jassi and the dance troupe of Aditi Mangal Das holding the audience in thrall. But the kicked off a controversy due to change in its venue. For the first time since its inception, the Patna Sahib Mahotsav was held at S K Memorial Hall, far away from the holy shrine. The change in venue had angered residents living near the shrine.last_img read more

Rafe Mair former BC radio host and cabinet minister dead at 85

first_imgVANCOUVER – Former B.C. cabinet minister and well-known Vancouver radio broadcaster Rafe Mair has died at the age of 85.A longtime colleague of Mair’s said that he’ll be remembered as a hard-hitting interviewer who was tough but fair.Shiral Tobin, who produced his show on CKNW, said Mair’s doctor confirmed his death at around 6 a.m. Monday morning.Tobin said Mair’s health had been declining for a number of years, but that he had continued to write articles and appear as a radio panellist until recently.She said Mair fought for Indigenous rights, feminism, and the environment in his later years. He even gave up his pastime of fly-fishing over his growing concern for the welfare of animals.Mair’s show on CKNW ran for almost two decades, and was known as one of the most popular radio programs in the province.“He was one of the best broadcasters in B.C. history,” said Tobin. “He used his radio talk show as a bully pulpit on behalf of the people of British Columbia.”Mair’s political career began in 1975, after years of practising law, when he served as a MLA for Kamloops as a member of the B.C. Social Credit Party.He also served as a cabinet minister in a variety of positions during Premier Bill Bennett’s time in office.Former premier Bill Vander Zalm, who served as an MLA and cabinet minister in the legislature alongside Mair, said he was a strong and effective politician who no one could go up against without expecting a lively debate.“I will remember Rafe, and I’m sure everyone will remember, he was a very determined fellow. He made up his mind about what he wanted to do and how it was to be done and no one could really stop him from doing it his way,” Vander Zalm said.“In the debates and the arguments and the discussions that were held both in cabinet chamber or the legislature he certainly made his views known very effectively. As a lawyer that came relatively easy for him.”Mair’s career as a broadcaster began when he was 49 years old. Tobin said Mair turned to journalism because he felt he could have a greater impact by holding power to account.“He saw it as a gateway to power for the public,” she said. “He knew he had more influence, he could give a voice to the issues in British Columbia from the radio station.”Tobin, who is now director of programming and journalism at CBC in Vancouver, said although he had strong opinion and was tough on his guests, Mair was wonderful to work with and great mentor.Mair was a recipient of multiple journalism awards, including the Michener Award for courageous journalism in 1995, and the B.C. Association of Broadcasters “Broadcast Performer of the Year” award in 1993.He is survived by his wife Wendy Conway, five children and step-children, nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.last_img read more
